Icynene quality, Kishorn delivery...

Icynene share our values in providing quality - and this is carried out in a way which is not harmful to the planet. The Icynene products we use in your home are 100% water blown and contain no HFC’s or HCFC’s which means that there are no harmful gasses which can be released into the air you breathe - only Icynene can boast this quality. In addition to its green credentials (remarkably it has a Global Warming Potential of 1), Icynene carries out the role of an insulation and an air barrier in one. This results in a much more energy efficient building, greatly reducing the buildings whole life carbon emissions.

Remember, we are approved installers of Icynene in the Highlands of Scotland and Beyond...installed by our very own highly experienced and fully trained spray teams.

Not wanting to be too techie, but the blowing agent HFC-134a has a GWP of 1,430, meaning that it’s 1,430 times as potent as carbon dioxide (which is defined as having a GWP of 1). Nearly all closed-cell SPF is made with the blowing agent HFC-245fa, which has a GWP of 1,030 and to us that is not acceptable.

It's important to do your own research on the internet, but only take notice of information on credible web sites...unfortunately there are bloggers out there (which are usually Icynene competitors) who tell tales of woe to try to put people off using Icynene. These bloggers usually hide behind “anonymous” pen names and their claims are completely unfounded.
